When to Visit
It’s always a good time to visit Cape Town. The city has always been rewarded for its natural beauty. The city is currently witnessing sculpture-lined green spaces, sustainable developments, and further renewal of previous industrial regions. The main goal of the design crew, though, is to tie the breach between Cape Town’s dissimilar population, so venture on a tour out of town to see how innovation is turning things around in the underprivileged towns, then explore peripheral wonders on the swanky bus system that’s making Cape Town practicable on public transport.
